Description
There are two main parts to this collection: 1) MUD1 archival materials and 2) MUD1 source code. The MUD1 archival materials include files for “Dungen,” MUDDLE reference manual, maps, design notes, etc. Notes written by Richard A. Bartle are inserted in the first (unnumbered) folder in the manuscript box. These notes provide information about the contents contained in folders that he numbered 1-32, and arranged in chronological order. Folders 1-32 are dispersed between a manuscript box and flat storage box due to variations in document size. The MUD1 source code is available online through the Stanford University Libraries at this location: http://purl.stanford.edu/wh632tj5702
